I have no doubt that Bruce will eventually be inducted on his own merit, and rightfully so.

Yes. But my point was that the band considered him a member so who are we to say he isn't if they think he was?

They said he was, ergo I put him in the list

I've had this argument before and don't want to drag it out here again. I really don't have a dog in this fight, but I base my opinion on the band photos from Dead.net:

I see your point.

Somehow that dog seems to want to keep showing up at the race though

Support for your opinion also comes from Hornsby himself, who never saw his tenure with the band as anything other than a temporary arrangement.

'... if they'd caught me in 1984, before I got my own career going, I probably would have lived happily ever after as a Grateful Dead piano player - I think that would have been great. But they caught me in 1990, I had three records out, I'd sold a couple of a million records and I didn't feel I could give that up completely.'

- quoted in Blair Jackson's Garcia.
